Differin cream or gel contains the active ingredient, adapalene, which is used to treat mild to moderate acne. Adapalene is classed as a third generation retinoid (a form of vitamin). It works to reduce inflammation and blackhead/whitehead formation by reducing the growth of the keratin surface skin cells that can block pores. Differin is ideal for daily use to treat and prevent acne breakouts.
